Barbara Studham came by Art Waves for a second visit to tell us about her new series of children's books: Strawberry & Cracker: Twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. The series was inspired by her own four grand-children, all of whom have FASD. When Studham realized there are no children's books for or about FASD kids, she decided to write one, and then another. These books are filling what turns out to be a huge need, and have given Studham yet another way to make a positive difference in her remarkable life.
Barbara, as always, I am awed by your knowledge and experience as an advocate for FASD awareness. You continue to help others navigate community resources, reach out to support groups and share stories.
Your chapter reading shows what a talented writer you are. I’m so honoured to be associated with your latest endeavour—the Strawberry and Cracker series!
I’m delighted that Mohawk College Radio Art Waves with Bernadette Rule offers local artists of all genres a showcase for their talents. I applaud their service to the Hamilton area.

A REMARKABLE WOMAN
Thanks Bernadette for helpingyour listeners to know about Barbara Studham and her wonderful series of books. Barbara is a remarkable woman, both personally and professionally as anyone who hears her speak or works with her or reads her books will realize. Well done, Barbara. I listened to the full interview, something I rarely have time for, but you made it worth my time.
